Wednesday night, the LA Clippers will take on the Dallas Mavericks on the road, and they will be looking for their ninth win in a row. It will be the third meeting between these two teams this season, with the Clippers losing the first matchup in Dallas on November 10, and winning the second in LA on November 25.
After these two teams faced off in the 2020 and 2021 playoffs, a fierce rivalry has been brewing. And although Luka Doncic's success against the Clippers has been overblown to a degree, he is obviously still one of the best individual talents in the league.
